Register for 'Hands on the Future 2012'

You can sign up now to attend 'Hands on the Future 2012' on 26 March, and take the opportunity to experiment with some of the latest technology being used in student education here at Leeds.

Talk to staff using the technology in their teaching and view some of the technology that we are likely to be using in the future.

The keynote talk this year will be by Dr Neil Morris, from 10-11am.

Technology is placing an increasingly important role in Higher Education and can enhance student learning opportunities dramatically.  However, it also provides many challenges for institutions, teachers and students, particularly in the areas of IT competence, rapid pace of change, pedagogic advantage and time investment.  In his seminar, Dr Morris will explore some technologies which are proven to enhance students' learning opportunities and which are easy to deploy and scale up to an institutional level, providing evidence of their effectiveness.  He will also ask which current and future technologies are likely to offer long-term, realistic and sustainable improvements in student learning.

This event is also a Talking about Teaching event.  To book a place please contact Catherine Porter.

From 12-3pm there will be over 25 stalls and a number of presentations showcasing learning technology in use.
